How far is Pinnewalla from Kandy?

Can anyone tell me how long is would take to get to Pinnewalla elephant sanctuary from Kandy and roughly how much a return trip would cost? We will be staying at the Earl Regency Hotel and wondered if the reception would be able to organise transport there and back for us. Do you think that would be possible?

It's about 45 km - a little more than an hours drive - from Kandy. Earls Regency is about 4 km on the other side of Kandy.

A taxi should should cost around LKR 2,000 for the return trip.

All hotel receptions can organise transport, but usually at a higher rate.
